You see how the opening of lower loops on yours look a bit closer together than the upper ones?
Second thing is, the bow you want yours to look like has many more folds in the center than yours. It looks like you just folded yours twice like this ^^ if you were to look at it from the side. The other one looks like it might have 5 "mountains" - ^^^^^, maybe they used a gatorbite or sewed through with a lot of small stitches. I think yours is very cute though!
you've got a sharp eye and was always wondering the answer you gave in your 1st paragraph. i'm almost out of the tbb challenged group!
the 2nd paragraph . . . so you're saying the end/edge of the ribbon (when you're looking at it from the front of the bow) should be folded down . . . to achieve this look?
in other words
it should be a M and not a W???
